JoJo’s “We Get By”: Listen To Her New Single
JoJo has been on a winning streak over the last year: She dropped her cover of Drake‘s “Marvin’s Room” and showed that not only can she still sang, she’s able to inject more ambiguity, resentment and longing into a vocal performance than pretty much anyone else in the game, racking up 32 million hits on YouTube for the song. Then, this summer, she won universal acclaim with “Demonstrate,” a slow-burning, freaky R&B jam that oozed attitude and sex appeal. Now, she’s gearing up for a new era with her mixtape, Agápē, and the first single, “We Get By,” premiered today.
It’s not the first time JoJo’s managed to turn an elegantly simple pop song into something much more emotionally complex, and with the direction Agape is taking, it won’t be the last. Listen below.
